Join me and my co-leaders Doug Brown and Keith Bauer (both Albuquerque natives and excellent photographers) for a 3 day workshop at the Bosque del Apache this December! The workshop experience will be broad-based, emphasizing manual exposure for long lens flight photography (either hand held or with a tripod). The other major emphasis will be on image optimization with Lightroom and Photoshop. All 3 instructors are well versed in image processing, but Keith is a true expert who teaches classes on both Lightroom and Photoshop. We'll be doing formal and informal computer sessions every day. Additional workshop highlights will include environmental avian photography (one of Greg's specialties), landscapes (including sunrises, sunsets, nighttime shoots), long exposures, and silhouettes. We'll also devote some time to captive raptor photography with a fantastic collection of birds from a local nonprofit raptor education and rehabilitation center (Hawks Aloft). A contribution of $1,000 from the workshop proceeds will be donated to Hawks Aloft to help support their important educational and research programs. Signup is through my co-leader Keith Bauer's website.
